teorn88 (1918) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Bottled. Beer is light-to-medium gold colored, hazy, with a small, white, frothy finish. The aroma is funky with notes of barnyard and grass. Hoppy with a huge note of grapefruit, light note of pine, trace of lemon zest; Yeasty with a moderate note of horseblanket, trace of dough; Some black pepper. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter, moderately acidic/dry with an average-length, lightly bitter. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy. Almost a grapefruit saison and no traces of smoke, yes!

Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael. Sampled alongside twenty other Fantôme beers. The beer is hazy and light yellow hued, with a small white head and sparse lacing. The aroma brings some light spice, candied fruit, and a subtle medicinal scent. Good flavor. Tastes like fruit juice in some regards. Refreshing and light, this is a stellar example of a session beer. A lot of flavor packed into a 4% abv beer. I would definitely have this again, and would like to have a few of these in the cellar.

Thanks to Umberto for sharing this during our epic drinking session at the Goblin Pub in Pavullo nel Frignano, Italy. Pours a hazy brigt golden yellow color with a one finger white foam head that quickly settles into a thin lastig ring. Minimal spots of lacing left behind. Sligtly earthy, vegetal aroma with farmhouse funk, bready yeast, peppery spice, light fruit and faint citrus. Nice farmhouse character with musty earth and wet hay followed by pepper, coriander and apple. The citrus presence is there but I’m not picking up much grapefruit in the nose. Medium bodied and much cleaner than the nose suggests. There’s still a subtle farmhouse presence but I was expecting it to be a bit funkier. Slightly earthy with hints of grass and straw followed by bready yeast, zesty spice and citrus. The citrus presence is much stronger than in the nose with lots of lemon peel and grapefruit. The must and spice flavors are there preventing it from ever becoming too sweet. Well balanced and really easy to drink. Very refreshing.

writerljberg (656) - Oregon, USA - JUL 8, 2012
750mL bottle courtesy of one of the PDX crew. Thanks! Reviewed from notes. A: Straw yellow. Little to no lacing. N: Intense lemon sourness, to the point where it knocks out the rest of the flavors. Green apple, lime, citrus. T: Tastes like Thai food. Lemon, lime, green apple, mint, ginger. There’s also some jalapeno pepper going on here. The nose is quite tart but the body’s very much on the sweet side of the spectrum. M: Very, very light. Like lemonade. O: Definitely interesting, and it’s memorable because of how completely bizarre it is. Saying that about any other brewery besides Fantome might shock people, but I’m guessing the rest of the beer world nods its collective head in agreement. Good enough to recommend if you’re into weird, though.

Pours light pale yellow with a nice size white head. Nose is peppery, lemony, white wine, coriander, vinegar. Taste is fairly bitter and lightly sour with a great bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Light body with a long aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

t0rin0 (62) - Do Not Resuscitate, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
750ml bottle at Fantome-a-thon 2012.

Pours light yellow and mostly clear. Aroma is heavily skunked but also sweet and malty. Flavor is much less skunked, it has a good amount of lemon candy flavor along with a bit of banana. Actually fairly pleasant once you get past the skunk in the nose.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
A pale yellow color with a white head. As soon as the bottle is opened an intense skunked aroma is apparent. Smells almost Heineken-like. There is a light fruitiness and just a bit of yeast. Taste-wise, things are significantly better. Not much skunk on the palate, but good light malt flavor and a hint of lemony tartness and yeast. Some wheat flavor and a pretty easy to drink beer.
